Awesome. And the garden cart is a smart hack.
This is really well thought out. Thank you! For scenario 2, was there anything specific you learned or did wrong in the experience that you had that you could call out specifically?
For me, I’ve been trying to get used to carrying a heavier bag around. Like you said, I assume that I’ll have access to my car if I needed to bug out, but if that’ not possible then how well would I do lugging my bag for significant miles? In my early attempts, not far. Trying to build more endurance!
Same here. A lot of this goes over my head but I’d love something that starts from square one.
I was about to scoff at standard def but then I looked it up and it’s from 1962 haha. Haven’t seen it but you sold me with “dealing with profiteers”. Did you read World War Z?
My approach has been to make my get home bag as close to my BOB as I can, though I had more money when I was making my first bag. I’m working from home now, so I’m usually close to my BOB so I’m okay with it taking longer to make the 2nd one. I might cut a few corners because not everything I want is available right now anyway.
Ha! Perfect illustration of what can go wrong when even 1 thing is overlooked 🙂
What do you prefer for energy bites? I got some of the Gu energy gels but I’m starting to hate the taste a little.
My mom was an English teacher, so she would use phrases like this, partially to make me more aware of the world (I hope) but also to get me to describe things more often, which led to being better with words as I got older. I know that’s not the point of the image, but it’s a nice byproduct of asking more exploratory questions.
That’s a good idea. I was wondering if my card would get lower interest because of the pandemic but I haven’t seen anything about that yet. A few banks in Canada did in April but no luck here yet.
They really bother me. On the one hand I guess it’s a good thing that companies understand people are struggling instead of being all peachy or not offering better payment programs. But it just all comes across as fake and makes me angry.
